Mizzie Maxx – Lead Singer/Guitarist
Slije McSkreech – Bass Guitar
Shep – Drums

Formed in 2018 in Brisbane, Australia, Hit ‘n’ Mizz is developing into a sought after Hard Rock band. After finding herself at a cross road in the music industry and wanting more Mizzie rounded up members from other bands (stole them) and started rehearsing and performing live with her original music. Mizzie Maxx is the ultimate bad ass front woman who struts her stuff with confidence. Her performances are never dull. She morphes from a punk princess to a rock queen showing her versatility and testament to her growth as a musician.

The band is a powerhouse combination of your 80s rock with a punk attitude. They have one aim and that’s to have fun and play music. Together they are Mizfits and Bratz just like their fans that have come together for the love of rock n roll, and are hell bent on delivering a rock show.

Edan H: Third times a charm as the Australian releases Industrial tinged single Gets You Off

After releasing his debut single Down in Flames in 2019 and Final Wrath late last year, Australian solo artist Edan H returns with his third sizzling single Gets You Off.  

Both dark and ominous, Gets You Off grinds its way through a world of sex. A sleaze drenched offering of industrial hard rock, articulately weaving between erotica and anthemic rocker. You won’t know whether to take your clothes off, or throw those horns in the air…or both!

Edan says about Gets You Off: “This song came to me in a dream. I was in a strip club and this song was playing. Somehow in the dream I knew I had written it, so I just decided to turn the dream into reality. Or at least what I could remember. I always liked the concept of industrial music, but I felt those bands lacked the melodies to get me over the line. This is my attempt at rectifying that. Combining my style of song writing with industrial overtones. I like to experiment with different stuff every now and then. I just wanted to see if I could”.

Following the success of his first solo venture Back to Eden, the Melbourne based guitarist/bassist/songwriter now continues simply under the Edan H banner. With resurging interest surrounding classic rock acts of yesteryear, Edan H (and guests) bring a familiar sound of everything hard and heavy to a new generation.

Gets You Off out now! Available on all major digital platforms, or download it for FREE from the EDAN H website:

Ouroboric: Australians Alternative Metallers Deliver Again With New Video Electric Pantomime

Australians Ouroboric deliver again “terrifically playful and fun” alternative metal with their video Electric Pantomine. The song is taken from their recently released and long-awaited album DeAd​-​BoY: Zero.

Explaining the story behind Electric Pantomine, vocalist Phil aka Crowley says about the song: “Electric Pantomime is an abstract take on new age voyeurism with a 2020-21 theme. The ‘foreguy’ archetype watches on as he munches away on the caution popcorn seeing the band play in isolation, as well as their live performance. Meanwhile, the fans each have their Covid lockdown space and each have their own eccentric personality that depicts how the fourth wall into their private lives has been broken down before the pantomime watching on.”

Mitchell further says: “It’s all very abstract, much like a Rorschach test is measured in it’s interpretation. The tides turn when the mist appears before the pantomime and the TVs rise, bringing him out of the shadows and into the live performance. With no walls to hide behind and no longer anonymous, the pantomime flees, falling victim to the mist. The pantomime isn’t the only one revealed however, as in the final shot of the fans, they become aware of the viewer watching the music video, further breaking down the walls of voyeurism. Where do the wires go?”
